Introducing such a lovely couple, Bob & Denise, the new Mr & Mrs McConnachie. Bob & Denise first got in contact which seems years ago and we’ve been chatting about their wedding in detail ever since. They had planned for their special day to be held at The Royal Beach Hotel in Portsmouth, on the bank holiday weekend at the end of August. This is a very popular weekend to get married as it definitely one of the best for weather during the English summer. Boy did it not fail to deliver!
We had met up with Bob & Denise on several occasions, including at The Royal Beach Hotel wedding fair earlier in the year. It was such a pleasure to share their journey to becoming the new Mr & Mrs McConnachie and the excitement these guys were showing was infectious! We were to start the day with Denise, in the bridal suite at the hotel, where she had planned for her preparation to begin. Denise was surrounded by her favourite people and the atmosphere was electric with happiness and smiles all round. Here are some images we created of Denise and her preparation…
Bob was planning to arrive at around 11.30 with his best man Tim, who had made the long journey over from the states to be by his side as he took his final steps. Bob and Tim served alongside each other and shared a special friendship over the years that would only come to grow even stronger as Tim was by Bob’s side as he married the women of his dreams.
Bob couldn’t resist showing Tim his favourite restaurant in Portsmouth, The Bodrum Restaurant on Albert Road as Bob & Denise had shared many beautiful evenings there together over the years. This is what I love about weddings, the women are running around like crazy having their hair, make-up etc done whilst the men are chilling with nothing to worry about. :) We still need to take a trip to the Bodrum Bob!
Here are some images we created of Bob and his preparation at the hotel…
It wasn’t long before we headed back to Denise as she was making her final touches to her make-up and hair. Denise had chosen to have her make-up done by the amazing Georgina Chambers, who as you can see from the images is one of the best in the business. Denise's hair was to be done by Karen Clarke who was just a master when it came to styling Denise’s hair. Denise wanted to go for a 1950’s/60’s hair up look which complemented her dress and the finished look was just amazing.
Here are some images we captured of Denise as the final touches were applied and she took those final steps to becoming the new Mrs McConnachie…
Ami and I would just like to take a few moments to say a huge thank you to both Bob & Denise for choosing us to be such a big part of their special day. The day was truly stunning from the word go and it was such a pleasure to be surrounded by so many amazing people. You are both such lovely people but together you are even more amazing and you complete each other. Your love and respect for each other really does inspire Ami and I to be the best we can be for each other, so for that we can only thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Also a huge thank you to Bob & Denise’s family and friends. You guys made us feel so welcome and made our jobs ever so much easier. Here’s to the lovely couple and years of happiness together, may your love for each other grow ever stronger every day.
But guys, don’t go yet as there are loads more images for you to see below! If you are currently planning your special day, then please don’t hesitate to get in contact as we would love to capture yours too.
Lots of love
